This hostel was an incredible find. The staff were always helpful and friendly, speaking both Japanese and English, and helping direct me along the way to the my various sightseeing spots. The facility was clean and well kept. I always felt safe leaving my possessions in my room. There was even a wonderful kitchen setup that we used on multiple occasions. It was like being at home! Thank you for the lovely visit. I will come again!

The hostel is wonderful, and the staff members are also very nice and helpful. Furthermore, without their help of providing us accommodation at the very last moment (since all the hotels and hostels in Kyoto were fully booked), we would be sleeping on the street! Thanks a lot!

We chose this hostel based on the online ratings and we were not disappointed. Nothing was overlooked here and everything was clean and easily accessible. The bar was a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers.

The hostel was really nice and comfy, just like normal in Japan. I've been to a few different k's houses because I live in Tokyo and they are always really friendly and helpful. Besides it being very hot like every summer it was a good small couple day trip.

-Private locker for shoes is unnecessary. Its all about hygiene as shoes may become smelly & bacteria may be generated in a completely enclosed compartment. -Slippers best to be open top type. -Roof top area can be further furnished with decor & plant.

This place I would love to recommend people. I feel like I stay in a hotel. It is opened for everyone include family or big groups. We are really enjoy spending time over there. I am sure another trip, I will choose K house branches to stay.

This is our second stay at k's house and it was as good as our first! Staff were friendly and welcoming, recommended us places to eat and even helped with advice about visiting universal studios. We had a private room this time with our own bathroom which was clean and comfortable with good air conditioning (we visited in summer). Will be staying again on our next trip!

K's house is located close to Shichijo Station (Keihan Line) and to Kyoto Station, but is far from Teramachi/Kawaramachi shopping area, Yasaka Shrine and Gion District. It is very clean, safe, great staff and close to bus/subway lines. They organize free events on Tuesdays such as origami, shodo and go (Japanese chess). Very good atmosphere

Excellent hostel, well run, good facilities. Really couldn't fault them.

This place was amazing. All the usual high standards of a k house hostel, easy accessible and a bar (coffee house) complements the lounge area perfectly. I lost everything at a festival but the fantastic staff helped me contact the police and find it all (without making me feel worse than I already did). They also went with me to translate my thanks and apology to the couple who found my bag.

This isn't just some hostel, this is an establishment! Basically like a hotel but with bunk beds. I really liked staying here, everything was nice and clean and it is very close to the train station.

Top hostel, clean, friendly staff, good facilities. Rooms were a little on the tight side and the windows had inadequate window furnishings, especially in the early morning sun. Other than that, very good.
